Abstract

Curriculum coherence is widely valued as underpinning the enactment of a curriculum consistent with intentions. Such coherence depends on good alignment between, among other things, the written curriculum, available resources, the range of assessments, and teachers’ capacity, including their knowledge, skills and affect. We report on a group of longitudinal studies mapping the early enactment of an aspirational curriculum in England which initially appeared to be supported by a coherent system, and show how the maintenance of that coherence was threatened by competing teacher beliefs in a market-driven and high stakes accountability regime.
